February 22nd, 2013 – Avian Friday: Young Baldie

About this time of the year is when you can usually find good numbers of Bald Eagles migrating through Washington’s Skagit Valley. After they have wintered along the banks of the Skagit River where they feed on the abundant runs of Chum Salmon, they begin their journey back downstream as they head North to Canada. In the town of Edison, I found a small open spot along the bank of Samish Bay that allowed a secluded peek at this young eagle.
